My regular Pho place, here in Scottsdale, is always a good place to spot a really cool car, and since I go there at least once a week, I get to see my fair share. The last pic I posted from there was a Mclaren 720s.

This time, I got a couple pics of TWO super cool cars, parked right next to each other. It's a toss up as to which was more expensive.. have a look:





Can't really say year-wise, but from what I can see, we've got a Ferrari California T, and a Porsche Cayman S.. both in just awesome condition.

Look how the Ferrari is parked. A newbie driver. If he/she keeps poking over curbs like that the front spoiler is going to get trashed.

The Porsche driver has it right.

Isn't the Cayman a hardtop boxster? If so, I'd have to guess the Ferrari is twice as expensive.

Yeah, I went and looked it up.. not knowing year, I can't say what each would actually cost in hard figures, but you're probably about right. I realized I was thinking of a different Porsche.

Either way, both are pretty darn sweet.

Also, since he had the top down, I got a look inside the Ferrari... and I got the impression the guy either has so much money that he just doesn't care, or is just not very concerned with keeping it immaculate.

I would agree with Ferrari being more expensive.

Iím guessing the driver of the Ferrari is worried about his rear end sticking out if he doesnít park in. DIHD, DIHD. Itís a expensive car problem.


Cannot see signatures any longer so it doesn’t matter.

Both licensed in Az. I donít even want to think what kind of vehicle license tax those two incur. But if youíre wealthy, it doesnít matter.

LOL When I lived in CA I worked at a dealer in SF bay area had some $$$ customers come through, Guys buying new vettes and escalades. One of the guys I sold a vette to said he was going to register it in Arizona(Mothers address) to save on taxes and fees lol. And I also have heard the same from a collector buddy in LA people buying $$$$$$$ luxury/Exotic cars in Oregon (No sales tax) and then moving them to CA

As they say, Most people don't get rich being stupid lol

I'm guessing a plasti-dip job to protect the paint or make it look unique. Hopefully, not permanent but who knows.
